SATURDAY 24 August was the official launch of the Deloraine Pottery Hub, held at Deloraine Creative Studios. Sonja Grodski, the President of DCS, welcomed 30 guests to the launch.

Sally Darke, Chairperson of the Tasmanian Community Fund congratulated the Deloraine Pottery Hub on their launch. ‘It is a pleasure’, she said, ‘to see the kiln we have funded set up and being used by the community in this large open space.’

Sonja also spoke of the work that Trish Richers, the Pottery Hub coordinator, has achieved with kiln firings, organising beginner classes and arranging for professional and amateur potters to use the Hub. ‘Through her efforts,’ Sonja said, ‘Trish has produced a relaxed atmosphere where people using the space feel most welcome.’

A toast was then given to the success of the Deloraine Pottery Hub.

The Meander Valley Council was thanked for their generous support supplying shelving, benches and cupboards.
